FM03 Settings: Set it Like a Pearl

Saturday November 23

1:00 PM  –  5:00 PM

Intermediate to Advanced*               1 day

Pearls are traditionally set from the inside out, glued into a cup and onto a peg.  This is a good approach for hard-to-set stones.  It also works well for alternative materials like pottery shards, glass, and rocks. The workshop focuses on using cradles and pegs to anchor objects which require drilling with a diamond drill bit.  Adhesive strategies will also be discussed.  *Prerequisite: Must have experience with piercing, filing, sawing, and high temperature soldering.
